It’s good to see a Hollywood A-lister not break in the face of liberal pressure.
After enough critics have sounded off about his “infamously anti-LGBTQ” church, actor Chris Pratt has issued a public response in defense of his house of worship.
In a post on his Instagram and Facebook stories, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor said that Hillsong Church is not a hateful place and opens its “doors to absolutely everyone.”
It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which hates a certain group of people and is “infamously anti-LGBTQ.” Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.
Despite what the Bible says about my divorce, my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk. They helped me tremendously offering their love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race, or gender.
My faith is important to me but no church defines me or my life, and I am not a spokesman for any church or any group of people. My values define who I am. We need less hate in this world, not more. I am a man who believes that everyone is entitled to love who they want free from the judgment of their fellow man.
Pratt’s post included a quote from Jesus, “I give you a new command, love one another,” which the actor said “guides me in my life.”
“He is a God of Love, Acceptance, and Forgiveness. Hate has no place in my or this world,” Pratt concluded.
This past Friday, openly lesbian actress Ellen Page publicly criticized Chris Pratt for attending Hillsong Church, attended also by Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner. It was founded in Australia with locations in New York City and Los Angeles. Carl Lentz, leader of the New York branch, said in 2015 that homosexuality is a sin. Later that year, two male choir members of the church got married and Brian Houston, the church’s global senior pastor, released a statement denouncing the union.
For this, Ellen Page and several LGBTQ activists have been demanding Chris Pratt publicly denounce Hillsong’s past statements or clarify his own position at the very least. Page tweeted Monday, “If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed. Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop. Sending love to all.”
That is TRUE Christianity !!! God bless you Chris
What Bible does Chris Pratt read and follow. Homosexuality is a sin according to God. It is mentioned that Man should sleep with woman and woman with man, not man with man not woman with woman. It is reaffirmed several times throughout the Bible. Infact, Jesus’s blessing of the marriage at Canna was a marriage of Man and woman.
Clam licker elen page demands nothing. You do as you wish elen, and do it in the privacy of your home, and stop trying to force your agenda on normal people. I say normal because GOD and the Bible (OoooWeeee libs hate that) define marriage as a union between 1 Woman and 1 man. Get over it kid. Hilldahag lost in a landslide.
Unfortunately his Christian church, Hillsong church has committed an apostasy by opening their church to the homosexuals, Lesbians and Transgenders. Hillsong says they open to everyone, but that everyone goes so far until you face with those who fail to repent and carry their sin. They need to turn away from their perversion lifestyle to God Almighty.
Any church that goes against the truth about homosexuality, transsexuality, or any other perversions is
not following Jesus and our one true God. The abominations that happened during Lot’s days of Sodom
and Gomorrah are still the same abominations of 2019. God’s character doesn’t change, so guess who
must change and submit to the will of God? People are always attempting to get God to change and
fit into their evil agendas. It will never work. When you flaunt your perversions and demand others share
in them, God will judge you accordingly. A church that allows gays to marry and openly flaunt their sins
is asking for trouble. It is the job of the church ( all churches that claim to follow Christ) must plainly
preach against the LGBTQ life styles. The only relationship ordained and blessed by God is the union
by marriage between one man and one woman. Yes, the are only two genders that God created in
Eden are male and female. Anything else is satanic. People living sinful and perverse lives need to repent.
Turn from their wicked ways and ask Jesus to change their lives. Confess your sins, quit sinning and ask
Jesus to be the Lord of your life. He will save you. Attend a BIBLE based church that upholds the word and
will never compromise. You cannot serve two masters. Jesus told the woman caught in the act of adultry,
to “Go and sin no more”. That is HIS same call to those living the perverse life styles of LGBTQ.
The plain truth is Christianity in fact teaches that promiscuity is a sin . . . in every form! Sex is for marriage only, according to the Christian teachings. Now, anyone who reads the first 6 chapters of Romans that covers the issue of homosexuality, and I mean in many translations and with other commentaries on the topic, only then should you ever condemn any Church for their teachings . . . and especially if the teaching is exactly what the Bible teaches!!! Your problem is not with the Church, your problem IS with GOD!!! I suggest you go to GOD and voice your issues, the Church is just obeying the Bible!!!
The LGBTQ crowd love to call others breeders. So the non breeders are always upset and are upset agaian. Who the hell cares. They are a bunch of ridiculous non breeders anyway.
i love ALL people, even the mentally ill – gender dysphoria included
what i will not do, is enable mental illness nor pander to their illness
Chris Pratt nailed it! Hate comes from people,not God. Have is not what Jesus taught. God will be the judge and he won’t be asking man’s opinion.
Ellen Page is a would be actress seeking notoriety due to lack of fame. The likelihood of her ever becoming as famous as Pratt are as remote as the chance of infinity ending. He put her and any like-minded low EQ idiots in their place. My hat is off to Pratt.
“…. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop. Sending love to all.”
I agree. The damage LGBT causes is severe. It has led to all these confusing conditions about bathrooms, children being taught about alternative lifestyles before their minds have evolved enough to understand the world, children who grow up and have surgery to correct what they have come to believe is a mistake only to discover too late the mistake they were induced to believe, tax monies being spent on many things which should never be supported by taxes, etc. etc. etc.
